Photography incredibly bridges in diversity possibly like no other medium. As the Chapter Organizer of the Dubai Chapter of The Royal Photographic Society it is my exceptional privilege to welcome you.
Dubai has in recent times gained great popularity as a happening place and Expo 2020 Dubai is a clear testament of this fact. Photography like the world over has progressed in this region. There are plenty of subjects to photograph here and various photographic enterprises like photo walks, studio rentals, workshops, courses, meet-up groups have mushroomed in good numbers in recent times, apart from the availability of high-end technology; all contributing towards the propagation of the art and science of photography.
The Dubai Chapter of The Royal Photographic Society, established in August 2015 aims to promote the vision of The Royal Photographic Society and to provide a unique platform for RPS members belonging to all nationalities residing in this region.
We intend to hold meetings, distinction advisory sessions, tours, workshops, invited lectures, possibly hold an annual Exhibition, and constantly liaise with The RPS in the UK.
I welcome the RPS members from this region to provide their feedback and share their thoughts on how we could make Dubai Chapter of The Royal Photographic Society most meaningful and interesting.
I also welcome all RPS members visiting this part of the world to connect with the Dubai Chapter of The Royal Photographic Society to explore, learn, discover and photograph; the beauty and tradition of Dubai and the region in general. Believe me the architecture, desert, the sun, beaches, mountains, wild life, bird life, culture and very hospitable people of this region will leave you amazed !
Good Light to you.
